The Indian Journal of Arbitration Law (IJAL) is a biannual, open-access, student-reviewed journal published by the Centre for Advanced Research and Training in Arbitration Law (CARTAL). It is the leading Indian journal on arbitration law, and an excellent source of reference in the field. It is indexed on numerous online legal databases including Kluwer Arbitration, Westlaw, HeinOnline and SCC Online.
The journal serves as a platform for understanding existing trends as well as setting out new ideas. Each issue of IJAL covers topical developments as well as topics of permanent interest in the field of arbitration. IJAL endeavours to cover a wide range of subjects in the fields of international commercial arbitration and investment treaty arbitration. The journal also seeks to maintain a balance between practical and academic contributions and invites manuscripts from practitioners, academicians as well as law students. Each manuscript undergoes a rigorous three-stage blind review process conduced by the Board of Editors.
IJAL has the patronage of National Law University, Jodhpur, one of the premier law schools in India, which seeks to promote research and scholarship in specialized fields of law. In pursuance of this broader vision, the Centre for Advanced Research and Training in Arbitration Law was established at Jodhpur. The Centre combines student initiative and expert guidance from IJAL’s illustrious Board of Advisers to foster academic debate on contemporary topics related to arbitration and dispute resolution in general. As a part of this initiative, the Indian Journal of Arbitration Law was launched in 2012.
